Learning to code isn’t enough

This was an interesting read about the history of computer science education.

It brought me back to my high school experience in the early 1990’s. In its curriculum course catalog, the school advertised an Introduction to Computer Science class. I was looking forward to taking the course once I had some room in my schedule for electives. I signed up for the class each year I could and was disappointed each year when told that the class wouldn’t be offered. While I don’t remember the precise reasons given for not offering the advertised class, I do remember feeling like the answers were not satisfactory.

Alas… I’m glad comp sci education is more accessible these days.
